    Too early for the daffodils
    This small garden next to the church is undoubtably best when the daffodils are out. There were just a few snowdrops in early February but it was still nice to stroll through. It literally takes five minutes but you are likely to linger on the path which is made up of paving stones with the names and locations of people who have contributed to the garden. Interesting to see all the different places as far away as Canada and New Zealand!

    Daffodils everywhere
    I like to walk through here when we come to the village. There is always something new to see or remember from previous visits. And this year, daffodils were in bloom for us! A nice change as we usually come August or September!

    Nice garden and place, where the poet is buried
    Wordsworth Duffodil Garden is the place, where this known poet is buried and it is located near St. Oswald Church, in Grasmere town, on the shore of lake Grasmere, in Lake's District. It is a nice place to walk, relax or think about life and our ancestors. Interesting, especially for people, who enjoy reading this poet.

    FANTASTIC
    A beautiful garden with a lovely inscription on a stone. When I went there were no queues and the added bonus is that I could hear the church choir which sounded beautiful. Its also near the famous gingerbread shop.

Wordsworth Daffodil Garden is a small garden just behind the famous gingerbread shop. The poet’s grave (remarkably humble) is in the churchyard of St Oswald’s Church that overlooks the gardens.

There are a couple of information boards in the garden and interesting paving made up from hundreds of flagstones contributed by peoples from all over the world. There is a small marble plaque near to the river. Unless having a picnic or sitting for a rest with a bit of gingerbread (as we did) there's not a lot to see in these very small gardens so only allow 5-10 minutes to have a quick look around. We visited in June and there were no flowers to be seen.

Parking is available at Stock Lane Carpark, LA22 9SJ at opposite side of Grasmere, so at most 10 minutes walk away. Cost of £8 for all day. There are 2 electric charging points here.

This small garden is part tribute to William Wordsworth and garden of remembrance with memorial paving stones. Lots of daffodils are planted in the garden as you would expect for one named after Wordsworth. The gardens are pretty and more so because it’s adjacent to the River Rothay with lovely views. William Wordsworth is buried in the grounds of St Oswalds church, which also owns these gardens. Take in a lovely walk, then pay tribute to a fine poet and writer.

A very pretty spot in the heart of Grasmere. Regrettably we were there on a rainy day so no bright flowery daffodils for us. Nevertheless it's a pretty spot to visit and from here it's a short walk to see his gravestone in the nearby church yard. Best of all pop into the Gingerbread Shop next door afterwards for a legendary treat.

The daffodils in this garden are mainl the very early ones so on our visit at the end of March most were past their best although in other places they were still lovely. However it was still a lovey place to visit and there is a nice view of the bridge and rivyfrom the garden

We found this just by being in Grasmere for a break, very interesting reading the locations on the path that people sponsered this garden with, Found a couple from my home town. Runs next to William Wordsworths grave which gives added interest to the visit.

This garden is beautiful. Take a look around the church also, stunning. Then visit the gingerbread shop for home made gingerbread the best I have ever had.

What a beautiful garden, so peaceful. Loved looking at the tombstones and, of course, Wordsworth family graves.
